Why Lithium Ion Batteries Fail?

You want to be proactive about the safety of your battery-powered product, and don't want your company to be on the evening news. Is qualifying your battery manufacturer to industry standards enough? The answer is that most compliance based testing is related to abuse tolerance, but the vast majority of battery field failures are not due to abuse, but happen under normal operating conditions! Compliance based testing is necessary but not sufficient to ensure lithium ion battery safety and reliability.
